Sedgefield branch profile

I started my career in the travel industry here at Hays Travel nearly 34 years ago, and became branch manager here about 23 years ago. I love travelling to long haul destinations, especially to the Far East. I enjoy experiencing other cultures and anything to do with animals for example elephant sanctuaries and orangutan orphanages. I have recently returned from a safari in South Africa where I saw the big five on the first day and so much more. This has always been my dream holiday.

My assistant manager Helen has worked in travel for 18 years adores anything Disney and loves the USA. Helen is currently on maternity leave, enjoying some quality time with her son Josh, who is 3 years old, and the new addition Lewis. Helen is hoping to return to work January 2017. Meanwhile Kassandra is fulfilling the assistant managers role, she has worked for Hays 15 years as of July 2016. She has loved travelling around South America, her high light was a visit to the famous Christ the Redeemer., and an amazing visit to the Iguazu Falls, the largest waterfall system in the world. Bree has completed the first year of her NVQ, and recently won apprentice of the Quarter. She is looking forward to her first girls holiday away to the white isle of Ibiza. We expect she will be throwing her shapes on the dance floor until the early hours. Our newest member of staff is Georgia, she has recently started her travel career with us, there is nothing she likes better than dining out after a day’s shopping and her favourite holiday hot spot is Mexico.

Hays Travel is the UK’s largest independently-owned travel agency. That independence means we’re not tied to a particular tour operator and will search a wide variety of suppliers to get you a great deal. We offer all kinds of holidays, from city breaks to cruises, London to long haul. We also offer competitive rates on your holiday money though our foreign exchange counter. . I’m especially proud of the fact that we book third holidays for third generation customers – I’ve sent grandparents, parents and their children on lots of very happy holidays! Customer service is very important to us – we listen to exactly what you want and work hard to find you the perfect holiday.

How we engage with the local community

Hays Travel plays a big part in the community here in Sedgefield. Every year we are involved with the Rotary Club's Medieval Fayre and this year we sponsored the children's tribute to Alice in Wonderland.

We also have close ties to the Ellen Timney Foundation. This charity has been around for almost ten years and was founded to help sick and under privileged children in North East England.

In 2015, we established a two-year sponsorship deal with Sedgefield Cricket Club’s youth division. I am delighted to say the teams will be playing in strips printed with the Hays Travel logo, which will hopefully bring lots of luck!

This year we also sponsored the youth drama group, Sedgefield Players youth section (SPYS), adaptation of Jungle Book here in the village.

Hays Travel were delighted to be their proud sponsor of show, and went along to meet the cast on opening night. Pictured next to Baloo and Bagheera (Back row) are Julie Ann Humphrey, Branch Manager and Bree Atkinson, Apprentice. Well done guys, great show!
